Banned from the ‘Garden of Eden’

August 1, 2021 AURELIS Syllabus, Cognitive Insights No Comments

EVERY feeling of ‘being sinful’ is the translation of a feeling of not opening.

See the flower bud metaphor in e-booklet 2.

Inner Dissociation

The Biblical original sin lies in ‘eating the apple,’ this is: reaching a state of self-consciousness and therefore also seeing oneself, one’s nakedness.

But at the same time, it also lies in the banishment, the dissociation, the loss of the source.

One belongs to the other. One is a necessary consequence of the other and is therefore inextricably linked to it. It’s one event together. At least: in that place and that time.

Of course, this is a symbolic story.

Of course, that doesn’t make it a less important story.

It indicates a symbolic reality.

You also see this feeling of ‘sin’ in depression.

Such as: the feeling of worthlessness, of rejection.

People who formerly (or now) were endowed with a sense of sinfulness,  who were rejected by God, doomed to hell, were actually depressed in their own way, even if other symptoms of a modern ‘depression’ were not present.

However, they were more fortunate in one respect: they could atone for it, possibly go on a pilgrimage or something like that.


A very symbolic event: you are on your way, every day again.  You get closer and closer to your goal ― until you finally reach it, the place of pilgrimage, better said, not the endpoint but the source itself.

A high-quality re-ligare.

That place of pilgrimage in itself is therefore very suggestively arranged: a church or cathedral or some ‘magical place’ in which an entire culture has invested heavily. For that reason already, it is respectable.

In its particular setting, it is not a deception unless people use it in a selfish way (I want to go to heaven, and if I do this, they must let ME in).

Modern Depressives

Depressed people can hardly be sent on a pilgrimage as a treatment reimbursed by insurance ― or can they indeed?

It is a symbolic act. A well-done,  well-guided multi-day meditation can also be beneficial. There is no need for deception.

On the contrary, there are even more possibilities if you tackle the matter directly. That is, of course, what AURELIS stands for.

AURELIS has no ‘priests’ to forgive your ’sins.’

Instead, there is a direct reconnection with your deeper self, a going back to the source, to the ‘Garden of Eden.’ What’s more: you are going back with your eyes open.

This is: with a broader view of the difference between a symbol and something symbolized.

Guilt is the ‘Wall of Eden.’

There is no guilt at AURELIS.

Then you see that the human being has never been banished from Eden.

In translation: even a depressed person never loses his soul/deeper self. That’s impossible. Instead, he has lost contact with it.

In other words: the deeper self is still present but cannot appropriately realize itself. The way it comes into the world instead of this is what we call: depression.

‘Guilt’ is being abused in a huge way.

It is easy to make someone feel guilty for anything and everything and then put oneself forward as the one who brings a solution, for example, by telling that the whole thing is physical and therefore deserves a physical solution, and therefore also a solver who has the necessary knowledge or magic tool for this purpose.

It’s hard to break through this.

It’s also hard to really understand this text.

In any case, it is not a call for immoral behavior.

On the contrary, it is a call to consider morality essential, far too important to make it depend on what is imposed upon you from the outside, be it in the form of guilt or some completely unjustified penance.

When you see how deeply guilt and penance can affect people, you also know where the real immorality is present.

Coaching Note on Communication

To communicate = everything at once.  Any division is artificial. Give people what they really want in your communications. In other words, try to get the colorit and respond to that,  instead of responding to what you think the person might feel or might need on the surface. In the human painting, the colorit is Read the full article…
